Current-gen games to get cheaper, Capcom reckons

In a recent investor Q&A session, Capcom said they expect the software for current-gen consoles to get cheaper over time. “We believe that further declines in prices of consoles will cause a slow decline in prices of software as well,” a Capcom rep said when asked about their outlook for current gen machines. “But we expect to see a rebound in software prices when the next generation of consoles goes on sale.”

The session also touched on why the company decided to delay some of its major titles, “This was a strategic decision. Capcom uses an approach that combines management and development to reach various decisions. Consequently, we would not decide to postpone the launch of a title for reasons that involve only the game development side of our business.”
